Here Comes The Rain
United Arab Emirates, Lebanon
Producers: Bahij Hojeij, Paul Baboudjian
Production Company: Online films-Beirut
A typical Lebanese family is confronted with the unexpected return of a physically and morally devastated man. Here Comes the Rain asks the question, Is a return to a normal life possible for a man who was kidnapped, tortured and forgotten for 20 years?
The subject of my new film falls in line with the work I started in 1998 with Kidnapped, my documentary about the Lebanese civil war.Here, I tackle the subject of the civil war by touching not on disappearance, but on return. Despite the gravity of its subject, the film offers a message of love and hope
